Community

Building on the fundamental cooperative principle of making a significant and positive impact in the communities we serve.

While the primary mission of the electric cooperative is to deliver reliable, inexpensive power, its secondary mission has always been to make a difference in the communities it serves.

In the 1930s it was going from community to community teaching farmers and homeowners how to use electrical appliances. In the 1950s we began working with local high schools in the Washington Youth Tour program. In the 1970s it was developing energy conservation programs.

Recently the cooperative has focused attention on the largest community-impact effort it has ever undertaken with the formation of the Middle Tennessee Electric Customers Care, Inc.. Customers Care is an avenue through which the cooperative assists worthy community causes and families in emergency situations.

Concern for community - another way the electric cooperative distinguishes itself as something more than just a power company.
